New agreement for Wisconsin auctioneers in Ohio creates licensing reciprocity
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) --- A new agreement for Wisconsin auctioneers in Ohio creates licensing reciprocity.
Under the new agreement, Wisconsin auctioneers who pursue licensure through reciprocity will be able to handle live auctions in Ohio, according the Department of Safety and Professional Services.
This is the first new reciprocity agreement for Wisconsin auctioneers in 20years. Ohio is the seventh state to recognize reciprocity for Wisconsin.
The agreement was signed in October by DSPS Secretary-designee Dawn Crim. Officials say it makes it easier for auctioneers credentialed in one state to obtain licensure in the other.
Without reciprocity, DSPS says Wisconsin auctioneers interested in overseeing auctions in Ohio would need to apply for a one-time auction license for a single event, or for full licensure, would need to go through the initial licensure steps.
